Brookhaven National Laboratory is hosting their annual summer course for graduate students entitled “Nuclear Nonproliferation, Safeguards, and Security in the 21st Century,” which will be held this year in virtual form from July 6–16, 2021. The course will present participants with critical assessments of current nonproliferation issues and provide in-depth analysis of the technical and legal framework needed to assess policy options. Exercises and demonstrations will introduce participants to the techniques and technologies of international safeguards and the challenges faced by international inspectors in the field. Above all, the course aims to give participants the knowledge, analytic tools, and the motivation to contribute to the improvement of the nonproliferation regime. This year for the first time we are expanding eligibility for the course to include professionals working in relevant fields, such as national security, foreign policy, nuclear energy, energy policy, and other related technical and policy areas.

Applications are due by March 8, 2021. More information, including instructions on how to apply: http://www.bnl.gov/nnsscourse
